... all in your first year of college ... all in one semester!

- Trainings in leadership skills and team-building
- Networking with leaders from across Ohio University
- Direct access to service opportunities and leadership institutes
Our Emerging Leaders Program is designed to give first year students the opportunity to advance in their knowledge and training in leadership development.
According to a 2008 study by the National Association of Colleges and Employers "leadership experience" was the number one attribute that, above all other factors (g.p.a., major, etc.) would determine the desirability of one college graduate over another with the same qualifications.
The spring session of fOUndations will begin meeting week 3 of spring semester. The first meetings will occur on 1/28 and 1/29 in the Amanda J Cunningham Leadership Center.
"The Emerging Leaders Program was more than worth my time! Not only did I learn about what true leadership is and how to apply it to my everyday life, but I made friends with everyone in the program and looked forward to coming to each session every Tuesday!" - Lexie Hartnett, Class of 2012
